Continental 4x4 WinterContact
This model is a performance winter tire developed for owners of Light Truck and SUVs who are looking for good winter traction on snow, and ice combined with high-speed winter driving performance.
The 4x4 WinterContact comes with an advanced silica tread compound molded into an asymmetric tread pattern combined with rounded outer shoulder blocks designed to improve handling responsiveness and performance characteristics overall. For safety reasons, it comes with intermediate tread blocks separated by wide circumferential and lateral grooves designed to enhance hydroplaning resistance and road stability on wet pavement. The tread blocks have special progressive sipes to ensure the multiple biting edges necessary to enhance snow and ice traction without resorting to metal studs.
Limited sizes are available with the SSR system. It is a run-flat technology developed by Continental that is based on a self-supporting reinforced sidewall. In case of a puncture, this prevents the sidewall from being crushed between the rim and the road.
Due to progressive technology the tire shows outstanding driving stability, braking performance and excellent traction as well. This model is one of the leaders when it comes to studless winter tires on the market. This model is available from 17 to 18-inch sizes with a limited tread life warranty.
